Spa fundraiser for longtime local


The Grand Victorian Day Spa and Salon, located at Grand Timber Lodge, will be hosting a fundraiser for one of its employees who suffered a massive heart attack, followed by a paralyzing stroke in June.

Doug Lind moved from Montana to the High Country in 1997 and started working as a massage therapist at The Grand Victorian Day Spa and Salon when it opened its doors in 2003.

Lind had a heart attack June 16. Consequently, he had a five-way bypass on June 20 and was released from the hospital on June 23. However, Lind had a stroke and was readmitted to the hospital the very next day. The stroke had left him paralyzed on his left side and unable to swallow. He is still in the hospital but has shown encouraging signs of improvement over the past several weeks. An avid hiker, mountain biker and snowboarder, Lind shared, “I’m doing good and giving two thumbs up.”

The Grand Victorian Day Spa and Salon is sponsoring a fundraiser to help with Lind’s mounting medical bills. The event will be on Aug. 24 at The Grand Victorian Day Spa and Salon and 100 percent of the proceeds from all spa services will go towards his medical expenses.

To make an appointment or learn more about how you can help, please call The Grand Victorian Day Spa and Salon at (970) 547-3624.
